A few hours after Bayer Leverkusen won the Bundesliga title for the first time, coach Xabi Alonso told the thousands of fans that the club will hunt for new trophies this season by crowning it with the triple crown.

With Sunday's 5:0 victory over Werder Bremen, the "pharmacists" ended Bayern Munich's 11-year reign as German champions.

– We want more. We want the German Cup, we want the Europa League - these are the words of the 42-year-old strategist.

A reminder that the final of the German Cup against the second division Kaiserslautern is scheduled for May 25.

And Leverkusen's next task is to travel to London on Thursday to play the second leg against West Ham in the quarterfinals of the Europa League. In the first match in Germany, Bayer won 2:0.
